I just got back from a one-month trip to Lake Powell, Las Vegas, Disneyland, L.A., and Kings Canyon National Park. Had a great time, but it's good to be back. Some highlights: -- Crashing our houseboat in Lake Powell -- Losing $60 in 45 minutes in Vegas -- Watching my adorable nieces at Disneyland -- The Hollywood Bowl -- The Getty Museum -- Seeing 2 rattlesnakes and one black bear within a span of 3 hours at Kings Canyon. I've written up most of the trip at Word Munger, but I still haven't done the Kings Canyon section. Great to be back at MR!
